My mare develops a strong head flick in the spring & summer. Giving her the Sneeze Free formula every day cuts her symptoms down considerably.

My horse (a 24 year old mare) has always suffered from stiff joints. I have been feeding her Brookby Herbs' Free Mover and she's now running around like a two year old. She's a quite a different horse altogether - even the Vet can't believe the difference. I swear by it.

I have been feeding Brookby Herbs Echinacea Organic Plus and the Herbal Health blend to my Grand Prix show jumpers for the last two years and I have been most impressed with the results. We used Echinacea Organic Plus for respiratory problems and found a remarkable improvement in the horses health. It also appeared to build the immunity to the many bugs that are now prevalent amongst horses. I am now a convert to natural products, especially Echinacea Organic Plus and I would strongly recommend the use of Brookby Herbs' products.

Horse Colic Treatment - Peppermint may be part of the answer

Horse colic treatment can come in natural form. Peppermint can be a contributing herb to colic treatment in horses and worth considering. Peppermints main therapeutic claim to fame is in its ability to relieve bloating, colic and flatulence. It has antispasmodic effects on the digestive system so is now used in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome and horse colic. Menthol, which is the volatile oil in peppermint is also antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal.

Horse Colic Treatment. Peppermint may be part of the answer.

These are possible symptoms of colic you should look out for. Your horse will show signs of restlessness and unable to decide on standing, rolling or laying down. Change in bowel movements with either diarrhea or very hard dry manure. Horses with colic can also be seen pawing the ground and biting or kicking the stomach.

There are in fact a couple of different types of colic. There is impaction colic where food has become impacted in the large intestine. Spasmodic colic is where the intestine tends to go into a spasm. Nervousness, stress or even parasites generally cause this. Lastly, there is displacement of the large or small intestine.

With regards to using Mint in your horses feed and in a horse colic treatment you will find it has a delicious aroma which is hard to refuse. It is considered one of the best digestive aids and will help relax and soothe the digestive tract.

The flavonoids in Mint will stimulate the liver, and the menthol oil is antibacterial and anti-parasitic. The oils are also used for ulcers and to help with horses with colic. Because Peppermint is anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic, it makes it a very useful herb for problems with the gut and flatulence. You can easily add 20 gms of dried or 1-2 handfuls of fresh mint daily to your horses feed and enjoy the sweet aroma yourself. A beautiful, tasty addition to any horses feed.
